“Pinks”

 

Description from Maggies Mom: As a child in Georgia, my beloved grandmother and I would take walks around her yard and along the dusty dirt road, and she would teach me the names of her flowers, as well as the wildflowers growing by the road. One of her favorites was "pinks", that seemed to grow in clusters, especially along rock beds. She also called them "thrift". I moved up north and never see them around here, but if I did, I'd plant some in her memory.

    I used to grow them. They aren’t that popular anymore, but they’re still around. See “Sea pink, also known as sea thrift” in any online encyc. If they don’t look right, try Dianthus, also known as “Sweet William.” Good Luck!
    And I totally love your pick! (I’m a fool for all pink.)

    I grew them in a hanging pot here in Oregon, a despite being left out in winter they came back for about 4 or five years. I love the raspberry tones in your pick.

    I grew up in the North also and we had white wild flowers that showed up first in early spring. But I love these pink picks from you and Melody and as I said they help me to wake up when I’m so groggy in the AM.

    Love the pinks in your pick! So many different shades of lovely pink. I hope you find the flowers you’re looking for. I grew up mostly in Alabama and Georgia and the flowers I remember most are “morning glories”. They bloom each morning and close up at night. They seemed to grow wild along the road side everywhere…don’t see them much anymore.

    Maggie’s Mom – glad you found your pinks – my grandma called them “cushion pinks” because they grow like a little hillock. I had some doing fine for 10 years up here – just had to cut them back a bit about every 2 years, as they spread so much! Now that I’m in a wheelchair, they’re gone – unfortunately no-one takes care of the garden that was my pride and joy. I’d glaly give a year off my life for the chance to go out and weed for just one day . . .
